Benedikt Kestler IS a German designer based in Frankfurt am Main - passionate about design, photography and architecture.

Having received the degree in Product Design from Bauhaus University in Weimar in 2015, he gained professional experience at Archimedes Exhibitions and studio e27 in Berlin. He worked for Architekturbüro Jäcklein and has contributed to the project slow tofu by Weiwei Wang. 

Currently Benedikt is employed as a concept designer at Atelier Markgraph in Frankfurt am Main and working for various clients such as VIESSMANN, Mercedes-Benz and ZDF.

Various projects during my studies at Bauhaus University fueled my interest for a cross-disciplinary dialogue between product and graphic design, photography and art, architecture and interior design.
